U.S. Postal Service

The U.S. Postal Service has proposed cutting hours at dozens of rural Alaska post offices as part of a plan to keep small post offices open while providing cost savings.

While some Alaska post offices would either see an increase in hours, nearly 90 would see hours cut.

Not included on the list are five Alaska post offices that had been eyed for possible closure or consolidation as part of a broader agency push to cut costs.

They are the Anchorage Postal Store and offices in Douglas, at Elmendorf and Eielson Air Force bases and at Fort Wainwright.
